The low down for me ol' mate
Well a real biker would ride it on down here (it's only 1,000km's or so......then again it is a ducati - haha) otherwise you could hand your pride and joy over to one of the specialist freight companies (yeah right) and it'll be here before you know it, might lose a footpeg or maybe a little bit of tank paint but otherwise she'll be good to go
Seriously I've heard good and bad stories - most of the privateers in the Aust. superbikes use them to get from state to state. Have a look towards the back of the next Aust. Mototcycle News mag for an ad or two.
Or call up Budget and hire a good old fashioned Ozzie ute mate - trip of a lifetime I tell ya
Your tips also sound invaluable
Is it weird in here, or is it just me?
